Rockwood 8310ss steps

I caught the front corner of the steps on the way into a campground and had to cut one of the front hanger bolts to remove the twisted mess. Does anyone know what needs to be removed to gain access to the carriage bolts that hold the front of the step brackets to the camper?

Ed, I'm a newby, also with an 8310, on our first trip. I don't have any axe to grind at this point---just wanted to make contact with someone else who has an 8310. The 8310 has been, and still is one hell of a big learning experience. I've written up a long check-list to use so that we won't drive off with something hanging out or undone, as well as some descriptions of systems and procedures. These aren't perfect but if you wish I can share them with you when we get back home to my computer in another week---and I'd appreciate anything similar from you. Gordy. gorob@bellsouth.net

8310ss Step replacement

After prepping the plastic step pan by reinforcing the left rear corner with a piece of 2" aluminum angle I reinstalled the two steel brackets. I had to replace the bolt on the left front side with a grade 5, carriage bolt after removing the door assembly. Once the brackets were in place, it was just a matter of levering the new steps into place and installing the 4 bolts. Now I have to wait for the replacement wheel skirt to finish the repairs.
